New Zias basketball coach adds pair of signees

CMI staff

First-year Eastern New Mexico University women’s basketball coach Josh Prock has added two prospects to the returnees from a year ago.

Signing with ENMU were Breanna Conway, a 6-foot-1 junior post from Murrieta, Calif., and a transfer from Prock’s old stomping grounds, Howard Payne University, and Rodneisha Milum, a 6-foot junior post from Houston and a junior college transfer from Eastern Oklahoma State.

“ As a coaching staff, we felt one of the biggest needs was solidifying our post game,” said Prock. “And we felt we did that with the addition of Rodneisha and Breanna.”

Conway earned a spot on the Division III America Southwest Conference freshman team in 2012-13. She scored 30 points and had 20 rebounds for the season, shooting 48 percent from the field and blocking three shots.

“Breanna has great size and strength,” Prock said. “She’s someone who is very skilled, can step out and hit a perimeter shot or put the ball on the floor.”

Milum appeared in all 30 games, including 21 starts, at Eastern Oklahoma, averaging 9.9 points and 7.9 rebounds while collecting 11 blocks. She topped the 20-point mark three times and posted six double-doubles.

“The previous coaching staff signed her,” Prock said. “She comes from a strong junior college program, and we were excited to learn about here. She (has) great size and strength (and) will help us solidify the middle.”
